The model electric train circling around Bagger Dave's newest restaurant in Shelby Township is roaring, and so is business.
The Michigan-owned and operated burger joint opened it's ninth location at the Hall Road Crossing Shopping Center on Hall Road and Schoenherr, Sunday.
The chain is owned by Michael Ansley of Bloomfield. Ansley is the Presidnet and CEO of Diversified Restaurant Holdings, Inc. which owns and operates Bagger's Dave and Buffalo Wild Wings franchises. The Southfield-based company operates 29 restaurants, 22 Buffalo Wild Wings (14 in Michigan and eight in Florida) and seven Bagger Dave's locations in Michigan, and one in Missouri. DRH said it has plans to have a total of 34 restaurants operating by year's end.
However, Ansley's roots in Macomb County run deep, as his first restaurant, Buffalo Wild Wings, remains open in Sterling Heights.
Lisa Bissett, a Bagger Dave's representative said Ansley wanted the restaurant to be near to his flagship Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant. The first Bagger Dave's to ever open is in Berkley.
Bagger Dave's is a family-friendly restaurant and serves a variety of burgers with 30 different options for toppings, and an extensive list of Michigan beers to pair with them.
